Recommended Gooseberry Jams and Preserves

Gooseberries are rich in potassium, magnesium, vitamin A, calcium and vitamin c. But better yet! They taste fantastic!

Gooseberry jam or preserve is a tasty way of enjoying gooseberries throughout the year.

What we look for when choosing a Jam or Preserve

We like to see a jam that has a lower content of sugar and where the berries are the main ingredient and not the sugar!

We want a jam that goes well both on toast for breakfast but also to a meal. This means that it can't be to sweet.

Recommended Traditional Gooseberry Jams

We recommend these gooseberry jams. We've selected those that have less added sugar and a good amount of berries in them.

Why you should buy it

These jams are light on the sugar and heavy on the gooseberries, just as we like it!

They have a light, slightly sour, slightly sweet green grape flavor. We like to have gooseberry jam on our pancakes but also in various desserts. Try it out for yourself!

Recommended Gooseberry Preserve

Preserves usually have a bit more sugar than jams and are therefor not as flexible when it comes to with what you can serve it with.

But where gooseberry preserves shine are on toast or biscuits with some cheese.

Why you should buy it

We eat gooseberry preserves less frequently as it's quite heavy on the sugar. But if you like it real sweet, this is the way to go. We think this preserve works best to afternoon tea, like they call it in England. Try spreading it on some newly baked scones, it's amazing! We stay away from it in the morning because it's a tad too sweet for our taste. But it's perfect for that afternoon "Swedish fika".

Recommended Gooseberries in Syrup

What we look for when choosing gooseberries in syrup

Gooseberries in syrup is usually quite heavy on the sugar. But there are things that fruit conserved in syrup is good for.

For instance, conserved gooseberries fit very well in a pie, if you don’t have fresh berries. The sweetnes of the syrup works well with different kind of pastrys etc.

Recommended Gooseberries in Syrup

We recommend these gooseberries in syrup. We like gooseberries in syrup because you can have them in your cupboard for a long time.

These are an excellent staple food, for that time when you suddenly want to make a gooseberry pie! It’s not always you have fresh gooseberries at hand.

Why you should buy it

Gooseberries in syrup is a great alternative when you can't get fresh gooseberries.

These gooseberries haven’t been prepared in any way. They've just been canned with water and sugar. This is something we appreciate. They have an amazing long shelf-life if you don’t open the jar.

These berries are quite sweet. So if you have a sweet tooth, these are perfect. But they also work wonders in for instance a sauce to chicken or pork.

Recommended Frozen Gooseberries

We always recommend to make your jam yourself. We also recommend to eat the berries as they are. Buying frozen berries is a good alternative if you don’t have the opportunity to pick the berries yourself.

What we look for when choosing frozen berries

The berries should not be prepared in any way before being frozen. They should not have any added sugar.

When we look for frozen berries, we only buy those that's been frozen directly after picking.

Why you should buy it

We recommend that you buy these frozen gooseberries, because of the above mentioned fact that it's all true gooseberries and that they have no additives.

They've been frozen after picking just as they are. When you have frozen berries, your imagination is the only thing that sets the limit of what you can do with them. To eat them as they are or make a nice gooseberry jam yourself is really cool. That way you can control all ingredients that you have in your jam.

Recommended Gooseberry Powder - Amla (Indian Gooseberry)

The Indian gooseberry called Amla is known for it’s amazing nutritional content. It's used for a number of purposes.

Amla berries are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C. It's because of the high content of anti-oxidants that they are excessively acidic and bitter in taste.

So eating Amla in powder form is fantastic. You can sprinkle it on your yogurt, oatmeal or have it in a smoothie.

By mixing the powder with other ingredients you can decide how sour you want your dessert or dish to be. The powder makes it easy.

What we look for when choosing berries in powder form

When buying a powder we always look for an organic powder. It also has to be berries that have been picked, dried and then ground to a powder without adding anything. In my experience it’s only the organic varieties that fit that description.

Recommended Amla – Gooseberry Powder

These Amla powders are organic. Amla powder is usually imported from India and these are made of 100% raw berries with no additives. This powder is very popular and lots of people use it in various way; for instance in smoothies or even as a skin and hair treatment!

Why you should buy it

We recommend this powder because of it’s health benefits. We choose Amla gooseberry powder over another gooseberry powder because the Amla berries are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C. This powder has a very sour and astringent flavor, but to mix this in your smoothie or sprinkle some on your food, it doesn't take over, it adds to the flavor.

Recommended Dried Gooseberries - Amla

The Indian gooseberry called Amla is known for it’s amazing nutritional content and is used for a number of purposes.

Amla berries are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C. For the this reason are they excessively acidic and bitter in taste. Amla in dried form is fantastic. It has a fantastic shelf-life and they are easier to get a hold of then the actual fruit.

What we look for when choosing dried berries

When it comes to dried berries we want berries that have the highest concentration of nutrients and don’t have any additives.

Many dried berries and fruits are infused with a sweetener (e.g. sucrose syrup) prior to drying. We really try to avoid those products and we recommend you do the same!

Recommended Amla – Dried Gooseberry

These dried berries are 100% pure Amla. This means that there are no additives, just all natural berries. They can be a bit hard to chew, but if they are too hard for you a trick is to leave them in some water for a while, to soften them up. They are also quite sour. Not like the fresh product but the sourness is there. We like the sour flavor with that sweet touch at the end.

Why you should buy it

We recommend dried Amla gooseberries because of their great health benefits. Dried berries are perfect too make tea of, especially if you think that they are hard.

I like to soften them up a bit. This is also a very popular product that's very versatile.

You can use them for eating them as they are or even to wash your hair!

Recommended Gooseberry Juice - Amla

The Indian gooseberries called Amla are exceptionally high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C.

They are for this reason excessively acidic and bitter in taste. I think this makes juice made from Amla one of the best tasting juices on earth.

What we look for when choosing a Juice

Juices are often very sweet and some manufacturers add sweeteners and other additives that we try to stay away from.

There are also juices that are made from concentrate and if that's the case, they often have a very high content of water.

I am not a fan of buying water with taste, when I’m looking to buy juice. I like it when it's made from 100% berries or fruits.

Recommended Amla – Gooseberry Juice

This Juice is an Indian gooseberry juice. It’s made from the Amla fruit and it’s pure. It’s not made from a concentrate and does not contain a lot of water. This one is USDA Certified Organic. The juice can actually survive open in your refrigerator for 30 days. That is quite long for a juice. Especially one with no additives!

The juice is not very sweet, it has a citric sour taste, that has a resemblance to lemonade. It’s really tasty!

Why you should buy it

We recommend juice made from pure Amla because of the Amla berries amazing health benefits. The juice has an amazing shelf-life.

The juice can last in it’s container for up two years if you don’t open it. You don’t even have to have it in your refrigerator until you've opened it.

The taste is a bit sour as there is no sugar added. But if you like lemon juice, you'll probably like this!
